to the grandparents…

the ones who prayed for us before we were thought and have loved us since our arrival

to the ones who have turned their home into day care just for us

to the ones who cuddle us, swaddle us, peek-a-boo with us, and give us pony rides

to the ones who stock their fridge with our favorite treats

to the ones who drive for hours at a time just to see us

to the ones who take a million pictures and have decorated their home with our faces

to the ones who sing to us, pray with us, wear us out and let us sleep on their beds

thank you for loving us unconditionally and for showing us that neither distance, time or circumstances will keep us apart.

emma, liam, ellie and grace

  1. I love this post! I think I needed to be reminded to show Noah’s grandparents appreciation for their role. Good grandparents for your children are such a blessing!

  2. Kelsea,
    Thank you!!!! honestly… is sometimes take it for granted. My mother in law and my mom take care of Grace and their other grandkids with so much love and without asking for anything in return. They truly are a blessing!
